Hey plussers! I have a chance to be a late selection for Droidcon Boston. They're letting Twitter decide on who gets the slot. If you would be so kind, I would really appreciate a like and retweet of this tweet: https://twitter.com/droidconbos/status/837351593116839936

I see so many RecyclerView implementations that could be so much better. I wrote up a blog post on one way to improve them with smarter ViewHolders.

We bought a Kindle Fire 7 with a case, and a pair of bluetooth headphones for each of our kids.
Tablet - $50
Headphones - $20
Case - $8
So $78 each. I can't believe that Amazon can sell these devices for $50. They're decent little tablets! Crazy.

Pretty cool. With Amazon's family shared library, I can buy an app once, and enable it for the kids pretty easily. Enable minecraft for the older three, but disable it for the baby.

This weekend, we decided to make ourselves a nice headboard because we couldn't find anything we really liked for a reasonable price.

We went to IKEA and got two acacia shelves: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10300499/
And two acacia crates for slats http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40297952/

Then built what you see below!

The whole project took about 3 hours, and cost around $110.

If you're an Android developer, and you want your screen to stay always on while you are debugging, but not while plugged in on your nightstand, start this issue.

Unit testing Android Loaders is easy, who knew?

Following the excellent article by +Ian Lake on Android's Loader framework, I decided to write a brief post about unit testing loaders.

Turns out, its not so complicated.
